Kamikazee re-enters scene with Long Time Noisy

Kamikazee, the band responsible for the hits "Chiksilog" and "Narda" are back with album number three, Long Time Noisy. The 20-track album, released by Universal Records, continues the band's tradition of dishing out heavy rock-pop songs laced with witty lyrics.


Kamikazee frontman Jay Contreras is not bothered by the fact that his band has only released three studio albums for the past nine years that they have been together.

"Hindi naman namin iniisip yon," said the mischievous vocalist with a wide smile. "Ayaw naman namin maglabas ng album na hindi kami masaya. Yon tipong para lang may mailabas na album. Ayaw naman namin ng ganun."

Lead guitarist Jomal Linao seconded Jay's opinion by saying, "Basta sa amin makapaglabas ng album na masaya at magugustuhan talaga namin. Hindi namin iniisip kahit na mag-five years and ten years pa yan basta ang importante sa amin nag-enjoy kami dun sa album na yon kasi papakinggan namin araw-araw yan saka ng mga tao."

STOPS, MISSES AND HITS. Writing and arranging songs to fill up an entire record is never easy. But personal responsibilities somewhat hindered the band from immediately releasing a follow up to the double-platinum selling Maharot took a long time to hit the shelves.

Yes! Despite the band's image as an irreverent and humorous bunch, the quintet of Jay, Jomal Linao, Led Zeppelin Tuyay, Jason "Puto" Astete and Allan "Bords" Burdeos are all responsible family men with normal joys and concerns outside the confines of the cliché rock n' roll lifestyle. The recent drug-related controversy faced by Tuyay in Dubai also forced the band to temporarily hold off studio time.

"Parang every album na ginagawa namin may process siya. Siguro next time, yon yung natutunan namin kasi wala kaming sobrang material nung nag-umpisa kaming mag-record, e. Nung kelangan nung deadline, wala e, isa lang yata yong kanta namin," laughed Led Zeppelin

With the completion and release of Kamikazee's new album titled Long Time Noisy,the band is once again back in top form to reclaim their place as one of the most sought after local bands both in the recording scene and live circuit.

The three-year gap turned out to be beneficial especially to the fans as the band were able to produce more than enough songs, making the much-anticipated record a worthy buy.

Long Time Noisy lives up to the band's tradition of mixing heavy rock and pop-all meshed with witty in-your-face lyrics. Kamikazee's latest effort meanders from an assortment of subjects: unrequited love ("Hanggang Tingin"), socio-commentary ("Chismosa"), political ("Wala"), and other mundane random experiences ("Hot Mami").

The album also contains a cover of Francis Magalona's energetic number, "Meron Akong Ano." Francis was supposed to join the band in recording the song but he unfortunately succumbed to leukemia weeks before the session.

Long Time Nosiy is now available at all record bars nationwide courtesy of Universal Records.
